    Immanuel vs. Emmanuelle
    Participant

    Not quite sure what makes James such a happy camper. But with all the impressive knowledge of isolated facts in the history of philosophy, there is one small little “slip of the keyboard”. The old man’s first name was “Immanuel”. “Emmanuelle” was a soft porn that became popular in the 1980s because so many closeted Republicans could finally switch on their TV at 11 PM without having to sneak into a peep show knowing that their reveered wives were already in bed praying for redemption.
    In regards to the relationship between Deming’s (one m) view on  problem solving methodology and I. Kant’s “synthetisches Urteil a priori”, James may want to catch up on the philosophical literature of the past 10 years: Hacohen, Ter Hart, and Wettersten are good starting points to brush up on the now somewhat outdated, dusty postmodern books that James read in his romantic years. If Deming agreed or disagreed with the “praktische Vernunft” we will never know. So that hypothesis is truly James’ contribution to the history of philosophy. I am looking forward to reading the evidence for this interesting proposition in one of the US top layered Journals of Philosophy, or History of Ideas. Good luck with your publication!!!! 
    Finally, it is extremely doubtful that the likes of Rove (drop out from undergraduate because he could not fullfil the math requirements), Bush (no need to discuss further), or Cheney would ever even want to read or understand the “prologema of a future metaphysics”. I think you are crediting these “leaders” with more intellectual substance than they ever deserve.
    Keep on amusing this forum with your cute little aphorisms. However, I would suggest to consult Pascal, Lichtenberg, Nietzsche or Cioran to make your messages a little more sophisticated. Right now they sound like some rambling by a “popular philosopher” who has been overdosing on Wilkipedia.
